Things That Make Us Go Ewww: Horse tartare
Not to ruin your appetite FOREVER, but a New York City diner is trying to be all edgy by adding raw horse meat to its menu.
The M. Wells Diner opened last week inside the MoMA P.S. 1 Museum in Queens. Horse tartare is not presently offered but the diner has stated its intentions to offer the “delicacy” soon. (See a review of its current menu, awkwardly titled “I Didn’t Actually Have the Chance to Eat Horse Meat: A Review of M. Wells Dinette” from Gallerist NY here.)
On Tuesday the Humane Society of the United States issued a statement requesting that M. Wells not feed its patrons horses.
“New Yorkers don’t eat companion animals like horses, so MoMA PS1 should uphold its reputation as a cultural leader by refusing to allow the inhumane and potentially health-hazardous practice of serving horsemeat at its gallery,” said Brian Shapiro, New York state director for The HSUS.
Horse Nation would also like to formally issue a statement. It goes like this.
Dear M. Wells Diner,
Horse meat is gross. Nobody wants to eat that $h!t.
